How absolutely stunning! Beautifully furnished and decorated rooms that tie in with the overall feel of the guest house. The calming scent that lingers across the space, the honesty bar, the sparkling cleanliness and the lovely ocean view are all just as impressive as the warm, friendly owner/hostess. Conveniently located just around the corner from Gateway shopping Centre in an upmarket area of Umhlanga, and a 15 minute Uber from King Shaka airport. I’m so impressed with the value for money, comfort and sophistication of Lavender Moon - looking forward to returning! Thank you Claire for being so welcoming and helpful!

My wife and I had a brilliant 3 night stay at the Lavender Moon guest house. The owner, Claire, really cares about her guests and makes them feel special. The guest house is modern and finished to a very high standard. There is also a pool and sun lounger area which has sun from early morning to around 4.45pm (in February). The house is located almost equidistant between the beach / the majority of good restaurants and the Gateway shopping centre, so it has the best of both worlds. In addition, breakfasts are a real delight. I cannot recommend the Lavender Moon highly enough.

One of the best place to stay in the Umhlanaga area. Nice rooms and a good view of sea. Near to the main part of Umhlanga where one can look for good restaurants and bars. Once you are back the place is peaceful and calm.

I stayed here for a few days while attending a conference. Wonderful people - nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are served on a verandah overlooking the Indian Ocean. The cooked breakfast options were served quickly and were well prepared. The room was very comfortable - roomy, well appointed. If you are in this neck of the woods, I highly recommend this guesthouse.
